LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1995 Ford SVT Cobra R
In 1993 the special vehicle team commonly known as “SVT”, introduced the first Mustang Cobra R. With the release of the new SN95 body style, the SVT built a new 1995 Cobra R to provide licensed road racers with a homologated competition Mustang to battle Camaros and Firebirds in IMSA endurance racing. As these were intended to be race cars, all came from the factory Crystal White complemented with a Tan Cloth interior with rear seat delete, manual windows, lock delete, radio delete, and air conditioning delete. Pushing the “R” concept even further, the 1995 Cobra R was equipped with a unique 5.8L V-8. The 351 V-8 was borrowed from the F150 Lightning sport truck with the same 4.0-inch bore and 3.5 inches stroke. Due to increased compression and timing over the Lighting’s engine, the Cobra R produced 300 hp at 4800 and 365 pound-feet at 3750. At $37,599 MSRP, it was also the most expensive Mustang to date. With only 250 units produced, this limited edition track focused Mustang was a instant hit with enthusiasts and sold out immediately. While many 1995 Cobra R’s saw competition duty, others were purchased for their collectability value.
Such is the case with this Cobra R, which has been maintained in factory-original condition with only 2,050 miles traveled since new. SVT went to great lengths to produce the 1995 Cobra Rs, which were built on the strengthened SN-95 coupe chassis and made race-ready by contracted MascoTech. Outfitted with a number of off-the-shelf upgrades including GT40 cast-iron heads, SVO/Crane roller rocker arms, 5.0-liter Cobra upper intake and unique large-tube shorty headers. The drivetrain consisted of a Tremec TR-3550 5-speed, performance clutch assembly, unique driveshaft and 8.8-inch rear end with more aggressive 3.27:1 gears in a Traction-Lok differential. Other special components included a 20-gallon Fuel Safe competition fuel cell, custom radiator, Eibach springs with double-adjustable Koni struts and shocks, larger sway bars, and coolers for the oil and power steering fluid. For weight savings, the back seat, radio, fog lights, air conditioning, and power windows were deleted. Externally, the Cobra R is distinguished by its raised fiberglass hood and 17x9-inch 5-spoke wheels.
This Cobra R is a future collectible for an Ford enthusiast. It comes fully documented with Window Sticker, Build Certificate, Original Bill Of Sale, Ford Paperwork, Original Photo Of the car in the showroom, copy of MSO, Ford Warranty card and much more.
